10 minutes about, including the 2 restarts. im downloading via http now, so im still getting the show, but it means i most likely cant try to check the ftp because now i *am* logged in to it with my ip. i'll just wait it out i guess and check later tonight since im leaving, but if this happens again is there an amount of time i should wait or something i can do to purge my connections?

The TCP RFC specifies servers are to wait two minutes before leaving the TIME_WAIT state. I think if you try to connect in that two minute period, it might extend further. Just try later tonight and report your results.
